mini soccer ball cakes for my son's b-day party in Dec. I thought about using the prep bowl set for them, would that work? Then he wants the picture for the cake that is attached. I think I might be able to make it with the batter bowl. What do you all think? Thanks

Let me ask a question here. My 13 year old has a party coming up in 2 wks. To make a ball, how would you do this using the batter bowl? Is it round enough to make two halves? I didn't think so, but could be wrong. I would like to try out how to make him two cakes one a baseball and one a basketball. Although I may just be crazy and do him a bundt cake!!

I'm not sure how it would work, but I"ve also heard of people making a football cake by doing two cakes in the classic batter bowl, then forming them together and laying it on its side. Maybe you'd have to level off the bottom so it doesn't roll around. The only thing I've made is a baseball cap with the Small Batter bowl.

I just made a pumpkin cake for my son's first birthday. Made it in the batter bowl and it turned out almost perfectly round! Like a ball! I thought it would be more cone-shaped, like the SB Baked Alaska cake, but mine literally turned out like a ball.. Which was nice because I was making it a pumpkin, but I had to level off the bottom because it started rolling off the plate while I was decorating it! LOL.. Ah, the moments you'll never forget..

And on a side note, it was one of the best cakes I've ever had--moist and yummy..

Let us know how it turns out!

God bless, and good luck.

Help with this

How can I get the 2 halves to stay together sitting up on top of the cake?

Unfortunately I've never done anything other than a baseball cap, so I'm not sure. Maybe you can make a cream cheese mixture like is in between the layers of the Baked Alaska cake??? :confused:

Unfortunately we can no longer search through old Season's Bests on CC other than the most recent season (that's a bummer because that was SUCH a good resource to search the past couple years), but maybe someone has the recipe for the Baked Alaska in a file and you can modify the cream cheese mixture for your cake.

to get a cake to hold together

To hold a cake together use wooden bamboo skewers. Just break off the skewers to the size you need. Insert into both cakes and they won't slide.
Paula Deen had this trick on t.v.:)

For the football cake I always recommend making one cake in the Classic Batter Bowl then slicing down the middle (longways) putting the 2 fat end together. It won't be a 3 dimensional cake (where it looks like a football sitting on a platter), but it will have the shape of a football and be a whole lot easier to decorate and plate. To stick the two pieces together just use frosting.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!
